- The stress corrosion cracking (SCC) of AISI 321 stainless steel in acidic in acidic seawater was studied by slow strain rate (SSR) technique and fracture mechanics method. The fractured surface was characterized by cleavage fracture. The inhibiting effects of KI on SCC behavior were also covered in this detailed study which showed that they were mainly attributable to their inhibition on anodic reaction. The SCC mechanism study supported the unified mechanism of SCC and corrosion fatigue cracking (CFC).
